A River Runs Through It
I am now pretty sure that there is some form of higher power at play when it comes to these film swaps. There is normally at least one shot that woks out so well you can only assume an unseen mystical film guru is somehow involved in the process.
This was the third of my international film swaps and my second attempt with blogging buddy and fellow film enthusiast Monica. Our first attempt failed miserably when my camera jammed half way through a roll. Despite my best effort at a makeshift dark-bag the roll was lost to the sunlight. In the finest traditions of trying to fail better we had another go.
Moni shot her side of the project in Oregon – USA. I then red scaled two of the rolls and reshot them in Dublin.

If you would like to try one of these international film swaps please get in touch. It can be as simple as shooting a roll of film and sticking it in the post.
